Donate To Our Community Response Fund To Support Those In Great Need

In response to the unprecedented coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), United Way Waterloo Region Communities has created the COVID-19 Community Response Fund. This fund will support the work of our frontline organizations who are at the forefront of this issue and collectively striving to ensure our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy.

“This is a difficult time for everyone and we know those who are already marginalized in our community will be disproportionately impacted. We want every citizen in Waterloo Region and the organizations doing crucial work on the ground to know that we’re here to support them,” said Joan Fisk, CEO of United Way Waterloo Region Communities.

Waterloo Region residents, community groups and businesses can donate to the COVID-19 Community Response Fund by visiting the link below. The funds collected will stay here in Waterloo Region and go directly to the organizations that require more support during this time. United Way is working directly with community leaders and agencies to ensure we are providing help where needed.
